Frontier Demolition Update As Of Wednesday 3 October 2007






Here is the state of The Frontier as I photographed it on Wednesday 3 October 2007. It is a good thing that they are moving slowly as I am still not blogging at full speed.

The front of The Frontier is rather untouched. There are individual windows out, but it is largely intact. The sign is still up. The front valet area is still standing. Almost all of the non-tower buildings are still standing. As previously mentioned, the rear valet structure has already been demolished. That is the only structure which has been demolished thus far.

Inside, I can see and hear debris falling internally from a good height. I do not know, but suppose that an elevator shaft is being used to drop debris. So although many windows are still up, there is more internal demolition than can be seen.

Still though, I certainly do not see the implosion taking place before 13 November 2007, and I will venture to speculate that the building might not be ready to be imploded until after 13 November.

In fact, let me go on the record as saying that I believe that the implosion will take place later than 13 November 2007. That, of course, is just my own guess.

Is that merely "a guess" or is it an "educated guess?"

Clearly the former is superfluous and is meaningless, however, the latter is worthy of contemplation and perhaps booking air tickets.

I will go to Las Vegas on Dec 2 until Dec 8, maybe the demolition will be this period?
I HOPE SO!

Implosions are interesting to watch.

I wished I could be looking at "live" from a safe distance.

Do you want to exchange links with my
voyage echoes in the wind blog?

Its about travel too & I reckon your vegas blog can benefit by exchanging links.

You can reply to my email.

L.E.Fant, air tickets? Why fly? Just call, and I will give you a lift in my fast car with the self adjusted clutch cable.

Bring your dust mask and hard hat, as I am not convinced that they know or care about what they are doing.
